Tapaderos

Tapaderos have long been a part of the western saddle heritage. Like much of our horse gear, tapaderos trace back to the Spanish explorers.
.
The primary purpose of tapaderos is protection from cactus, brush and limbs. They are also popular in COLD climates. by simply providing a cover for your foot from the wind/winter weather, riders' feet stay much warmer.
.
We offer three styles of tapaderos: 
  1. Bull Nose
  2. Eagle Beak - one-piece
  3. Eagle Beak - two-piece
THERE IS A WAIT TIME ON ALL CUSTOM ORDERS. We will discuss this with you when you contact us to place an order.
